Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has suggested a swap deal involving Liverpool striker Cody Gakpo and Brentford’s Ivan Toney.
England international Toney made a scoring comeback after an eight month ban, helping the Bees beat Nottingham Forest on Saturday, but continues to be linked with a move away from West London.
“If I was advising him where to go next, out of the clubs that have shown interest, I would tell Toney to go to Arsenal. However, I think the Arsenal culture is still not a winning one. The Brentford star is a ruthless character and it is clear he wants to succeed,” Collymore told CaughtOffside.
“Therefore, I don’t know if Toney’s attitude would rub off on Arsenal in a positive way. For me, if Liverpool decided to come calling, that would be perfect. I rate Toney so highly that I could see him in between Salah and Diaz.”
